So we are so not major leauge basketball, football, baseball fans. We love going and watching our kids play, nephews, nieces, and cousins play but when it comes down to watching sports on TV we don't get around to it. But when Jaxsen was born Doran gave him this little outfit and I thought it was so cute! It was a 24 month outfit so this is the first time I have put him in it! I loved it! So this is for you Doran! GO JAZZ!!
Don't they look so cute! This was the first pic I got of all my kids in their Easter outfits. The girls in pink and the boys in green! I need to get more of the boys because they looked so studly! Maybe by summer I will have all the Easter pictures taken. I can't believe how big they are all getting. I had to find Drew's Easter clothes in the mens section. That's right, the mens section. He has been wearing all of Shauns old clothes but now is getting to big for them! He will soon be passing hand-me-downs to Shaun. Baylee and Jaxsen are only a size different. When did they all get so BIG!!!!
Is it summer yet! My kids sure think so! They love these popsicles! I think we go through a dozen of them a day. Good thing they are cheep! I loved it that they were all together watching cartoons, enjoying a frozen snack! Love these kids!
I have never seen a kid that loves his dad more than this little guy! If you don't know where this pic is taken at our house, I'll give you two guesses. Take a look at the object above Andrew's head. Yep it is in the bathroom on the toilet. Jaxsen will bawl his eyes out until Andrew pics him up and then he is as content as can be! Andrew asked me why Jaxsen is like this. I said "You always wanted a little guy that wanted to be your best buddy, do everything with you, be just like you! Well you got it!" Andrew's reply was "Ya, but I didn't want another appendage." Andrew cooks with Jaxsen, reads with Jaxsen. If Jaxs was a little older he would probably be going to work with Andrew. Andrew always jokes that he is going to have to home school the kid, because he is going to have a nervous break down when he goes to school. Just a side note Andrew was the same way with his dad growing up! I think it is hilarious!
Brooklyn started soocer on Saturday! OH how hilarious! Maybe two of them knew some what of what they were doing. The others including my daughter just ran around with their heads cut off! So FUNNY! Brooklyn more just wanted to pose for pics and wave to us. My mom lost her voice yelling at the kids and Andrew just rolled his eyes at my mom. My dad is used to her so he just took pics! Baylee enjoyed the toys next to the soocer field! Fun times! We need to work with the girl! But she was the cutest thing on the field!
Posing for the camera! Isn't she amazing. She can pose and play soocer at the same time! That's my girl!
Coach Stacy telling the kids, "We run this way!"
Baylee enjoying the toys!
That is as far as she is going to go up! She is our cautious one!
Since we didn't go to church on Easter Sunday, my girls wore their Easter dresses this Sunday. Oh so beautiful but they have a thing with not SMILING! WHY?!? I don't know. Jaxsen was sick and wasn't going to church and Drew was with his mom. So next week we will have them all in their now Easter stuff. And hopefully better pics!
Last week I went to get Brooklyn's hair trimmed at my work. You can usually tell when it needs a trim because it starts to snarl at the bottom. While we were there we decided to give her a change and get bangs. On our way home she said to me "Dad is not even going to recongnize me. I am a whole new woman." So cute!
So our Easter festivities started on the Thursday before Easter. We decided to dye Easter eggs that night! I think my mom and Andrew got more into it then the kids but we all had a good time. You always start out thinking you have plenty of eggs and they always go so fast. Baylee was all about doing it herself, Brooklyn wanted to write on each of them herself and Jaxsen just loved to plop the eggs in the coloring!
Jax giving us his best wave!
Baylee, Andrew and Brooklyn! Like I said Andrew had lots of fun!
Mom over seeing all the work!
Our finished product!
On Saturday we had our annual Easter egg hunt. We usually do it out side but woke up with snow on the ground and the wind blowing like crazy! So we had to improvise and do it inside. The kids still had a lot of fun!
Baylee hunting for her eggs!
Jax and dad going at it!
I found one!
Our most experienced hunter!
You'd think we were making them hunt for eggs! Cheer up gals!
Enjoying their hard work!
After the hunt we decided to head up to Rexburg to celebrate Easter with Andrew's parents. My mom made the comment why are we spending the holidays with them. I looked at her with a bewildered look like "Are you kidding me! We live with you!" My dad had the same thought. On our way up we picked up Drew. By the time we got to Rexburg you would have thought we were coming for Christmas not Easter. They had a TON of snow. The next morning the kids woke up to their Easter baskets and new Easter clothes. I always got an new Easter dress, so I am carring on the tradition. Since it was conference weekend, they had to wait until this Sunday to wear them! Later on that day Drew found Jax, he had found his GIANT chocolate Easter egg and was quite enjoying it.
So last night all the kids were taking a bath last night and Brooklyn was apparently looking a little too close at the anatomy of her brother. Next thing we knew he was asking Grandma why Jaxsen's "tool" looked like an elephant. It took Grandma a second to figure out what she meant. I was just appalled! Apparently Brooklyn will now be showering by herself!
Someone in my family told Brooklyn we are eating at Cinderella's castle when we go to Disney World in November. The funny thing is Brooklyn has no clue when November is so everyday she tells me she wants to eat at the castle when I ask her what she wants for lunch! It is going to be a long 6 months!
Brooklyn got a new stroller for her dollies but isn't allowed to have until she goes poop in the potty (refer to old blog). She refuses to go number 2 in the potty but really really want her stroller. Anyways she comes to me one night and saysBrooklyn: "My dolly so heavy."Me: "I sorry."Brooklyn: "I think I need my stroller to put heavy dolly in."She thinks she is so slick! Must get it from her dad!
We are pulling into Walmart yesterday and Brooklyn says, Brooklyn: "I get a snow white toy?" Me: "We'll see." Brooklyn: "Don't say no mama. You be nice to me." Honestly what do you say to that?
Brooklyn wakes up a Grandma Lemmons house this morning and tells grandma, Brooklyn: "I wanna make cookies!" (At 8:30 in the morning I might add.) Grandma: "I've got to go to work right now." Brooklyn: "Grandma, girls don't go to work, boys do." Where she gets her logic I'll never know. Hope grandma is ok!
I picked up Drew yesterday and he tells me that he got his license to shoot birds. (Which I am not a fan of of but that is up to him). Anyways he says he was able to go hunting last week. I said- ME: "How did you do?" DREW: "I can't hit the broad side of a barn" just a serious as can be.
Grandma and Brooklyn were making cookies and grandma happened to be a little tired. In the process of making cookies Brooklyn spilled a glass of juice that was on the counter. Grandma apparently said a little too loud "GET DOWN!" Brooklyn ran off crying, a few minutes later she returned and said to Grandma "Grandma, you scared me to crap!"
Brooklyn: Mom, you know what? Me: What? Brooklyn: (In her most serious voice) Trix are for kids! And that silly rabbit keeps trying to get them! He is such a silly rabbit!
04/10 As I was putting the girls down for a nap I told Baylee that if she got out of bed I was going to spank her butt (I have to threaten in order for her to stay put!) Brooklyn always has to add as soon as I say I am going to spank someones butt "With a spoon." I don't know where she got that from. Anyways Baylee this time decided to say "With a spoo, or a fooook, or a knife. Really harrrd. All I could do was laugh.
5/10 We went into the bathroom this evening and miss Baylee had about 15 of the band-aids removed from the paper, spread out and stuck to the bathroom counter. ARRRGGGG!
Baylee and Jaxsen were going crazy tonight wrestling and running all over the living room! Andrew looked at them as they were crawling all over him and said "Who put a quarter in you?" Baylee responded by saying "ME!"
